GNCC Racing Announces 2013 Race Schedule
Morgantown, W. Va. (November 14, 2012) - Following a successful 2012 National season, Racer Productions is pleased to announce the 2013 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series schedule. The 13-round tour returns with all the same venues as last season in a slightly different order.
Beginning in March, the series will once again kick off in conjunction with Daytona Bike Week at Westgate River Ranch, before traveling north just four days later for Round 2 in Washington, Ga. Several other popular venues will return next season, including Steele Creek, Big Buck, Snowshoe, Unadilla and Powerline Park.
"Our team worked really hard this season to incorporate fresh trail with three new venues and the feedback has been really great," said Trail Boss Jeff Russell. "Pair that with the return of so many series favorites and we're pretty confident the racers will be happy with the outcome."
The series will then take a summer break in the months of July and August, before kicking off the final four fall events in September. For the first time in two years, the Ironman GNCC will return as the ever-so-popular season finale in October.
